NW has been a big picture of futility since their only 3-game winning streak in the '30s.  Ara Parseghian did manage two in a row in the early '60s, but even with that, Woody was 3-2 against him there.  Most recently, every time NW looks like they could get respectable, the Bucks have cut 'em down & put them back in the pack.  In 2013, they opened 4-0, and all the talk was about how this was the Bucks' first test.  BANG! And then their season tanked.  I'd be willing to bet that Fitz just keeps thinking, "here we go again..." When he played (93-96) NW was 0-2 (93/4). '95/6, NW won the Big Ten, but we didn't play.  We was the LB coach in 04, and has lost all six as HC,including the CCG last year.  It's in his head, and he may never make that step...(and I'll drink to that!)

"Digging Deeper" says:

"When Ohio State fans think of the No. 36, Chris Spielman immediately comes to mind. However, Spielman was the last of three great Buckeye linebackers to wear the No. 36 consecutively between the years 1975 and 1987. Today's article will feature Tom Cousineau, Marcus Marek and Chris Spielman.

The play of these linebackers wearing the No. 36 helped solidify Ohio State as “Linebacker University”. Cousineau, Marek and Spielman hold many Ohio State records and terrorized opposing offenses. Imagine the havoc and destruction they would have caused if they played for Ohio State at the same time."

...and before Cousineau, Bruce Elia was no slouch from '72-74...

I agree with you.  It seems to me he doesn't have the instincts on pass defense.  I have the same misgivings I had a few years ago with Orhian Johnson.  Again, I HOPE the new coaches say it in a different way that sinks in, and he's a All America selection & 1st round draft pick...but I'm not gonna hold my breath.
